  • Lower coefficient of friction
  • Higher fatigue strength
  • Good dimensional and shape stability

hardness of the Stainihard® NC layer

Stainihard®NC : 1200-1500 HV0.01
The above hardness refers to the hardness at the surface. If measured in a cross section of the layer, regular hardness measured at the surface is: 1000-1400 HV0.05 with a 10 to 30µm hardening depth.

The hardening depth of Stainihard® depends on the type of stainless steel, its surface condition and its degree of deformation. With increasing surface deformation, the layer depth to be achieved decreases.
